Chris McDermott answered 2022-02-21 15:40:24 +1100Q: Which of the minor political parties would you like to see holding the balance of power:
A: None of the above
The 2022 Federal Election - Coalition or Labor/Republican?
From time to time we ask questions on various issues which help us to know what our supporters and potentially the wider community are thinking. With the possibility of an Albanese republican government, with a Minister for a Republic, in place in a few months’ time it is important for us to get some idea of this thinking to enable us to prepare.
The following survey is to ascertain whether our members would prefer the Liberal/National Party to remain in power or whether they favour a Labor government even though it is committed to a republican agenda. The way our voting system is set up, it can only be one or the other at this stage.
In no way do we wish to breach confidentiality and participation in the survey is totally optional. All answers will be kept confidential.
Make sure the box “Don't publish my responses on the website” if It appears, is ticked.

Queen's Birthday Survey
There are calls by republicans and others to replace The Queen’s Birthday Holiday with – we don’t know what.
The holiday is Australia’s oldest public holiday instituted by Governor Arthur Philip in 1788. It is held in June or October in the case of WA & Qld, to suit the calendars within each State. Its purpose is to honour the Queen of Australia.
We are looking for responses from as many people as possible to determine their views on this matter. We believe that most will be against change and the answers will bolster our arguments to retain the holiday.
